DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?

THE SUNRISE (Photo by Pastor Davis) The sun is high in the firmament above me and yet, by its heat, penetrates my bones and marrow and quickens my whole life.

Now before you continue reading and studying this lesson push the pause button on your thoughts and think deeply on this question, “DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?”  The question is not an idle one and it is certainly not one that is meant to trip you up.  We just want you to understand without an ounce of doubt just how Jesus lives and functions in your life daily doing all the things you are capable of doing without you ever having to think about how He is operating within you.

To understand this clearly you must comprehend the meaning of the VINE AND BRANCH.  What is the VINE and BRANCH?  Listen to how Jesus explains it’s meaning, He says, “I am the VINE; you are the BRANCHES. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bear much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  (John 15:5 ESV).  Here once again I ask you to pause your thoughts, and think deeply on this passage, because sometimes we read it and move onto the next passage without considering just what Jesus is attempting to teach us.

Now that you understand it, come with me on this journey and allow me to share with you a deeper meaning of WHAT IT MEANS TO UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU.  It is often difficult to believe that we who are on this earth can really know ourselves to be always, without interruption, in His hands and under His power.  How much clearer and more glorious the truth becomes when the Spirit reveals to us that Jesus Christ is in us.  He is in us, not only as a tenant in a house or water in a glass, but rather like the soul is in the body moving every part and never separated from each other.

Yes, Jesus Christ dwells in us, penetrating our whole nature with His nature.  The Holy Spirit came for the purpose of making Jesus deeply present within us.  The sun is high in the firmament above me and yet, by its heat, penetrates my bones and marrow and quickens my whole life.

Likewise, the Lord Jesus, who is exalted high in heaven, penetrates my whole nature by His Spirit until all my willing, thinking, and feeling are moved by Him.

Once this fact is fully grasped, we no longer think of an external keeping through a person outside of us in heaven.  We become convinced that our life is quickened by One who, in a divine manner, occupies the heart.  Then we see how natural, how certain, and how blessed it is that the indwelling Jesus keeps the blessing and always maintains the fullness of the Spirit.

My Brothers and Sisters, I ask you today, is there anyone among you who is longing for this life in the fullness of blessing, yet is afraid to enter into it because he does not know how to persevere?  Jesus will make this blessing continuous and sure.  Is there any one of you who longs for it and cannot understand wherein the secret lies?  The blessing is this, as Jesus Christ was with His disciples daily in bodily fashion, so He will, by His Spirit, daily live His life in you.  No one can fully understand how things look on the top of a mountain until he himself has been there.

Although you do not understand everything, believe that the Lord Jesus has sent His Spirit with no other object in view than to keep you in His divine power.  Trust Him for this.  Let all burdens be laid aside to receive this blessing from Him as a fountain which He Himself will cause to spring up in you unto everlasting life.

Now as we pause at an unknown station on this journey for a moment in time, it is my hope that you have thought deeply on this question, “DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?”  Your thought process has allowed you to comprehend what it means to have Jesus living daily in your life, blessing you as you go about doing his will.

YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES

YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES

LIFE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Jesus commands us [all believers] to “GO” tell others the good news and make disciples.  This is what he says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them inthe name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV)  These are some of the last words of instruction that Jesus left with His Disciples after the resurrection and before His final departure back to heaven to be with the Father.  This verse is known as the GREAT COMMISSION.

Jesus instruction to the disciples was their assigned mission to evangelize, baptize, and teach people about Jesus so that they, in turn, could do the same.  The Good News of the gospel was to go forth to all the nations.

With this same authority, Jesus still commands us to tell others the Good News and make them disciples for the Kingdom.  “YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO “GO” AND MAKE DISCIPLES!”  We are to go whether it is next door or to another country and make disciples.  It is not an option, but a command to all who call Jesus “LORD.”  As we obey, we have comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is always with us.  This would occur through the Holy Spirit’s presence in believer’s lives.  The Holy Spirit would be Jesus presence that would never leave them (John 14:26; Acts 1:4-5).  Jesus continues to be with us today through his Spirit.

YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO “GO” AND MAKE DISCIPLES, the choice is yours, and however, if we refuse to serve King Jesus faithfully, doing as He has command us, we are disloyal subjects.  As believers we must make Jesus King of our lives and worship him as our Savior, King, and Lord, being obedient and always walking in the path of righteousness.

Now may the saving grace of our Lord and Savior bless you abundantly as you walk out your purpose doing his will.  Remember, “YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO “GO” AND MAKE DISCIPLES!”

Good Morning to all of you my dear Brothers and Sisters, and a happy and joyful Easter Resurrection Sunday Morning, Jesus is alive and well this Easter Sunday this “I BELIEVE,” my question is, “WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?  For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten son, that whosoever believe in him shall not die, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)  Do you believe?  What an awesome gift of love that one person sacrificed his own life for the good of all our lives, took on the burden of all our sins that we may enjoy the fruits of this life and live on through eternity.  You ought to be lifting up your holy hands in high praise and thanksgiving to have this opportunity to say, “I thank you Lord, I love you Lord, I honor you Lord, I praise your Holy Name, because you are worthy to be praised.  Glory, glory hallelujah for the Lord is truly good.

NOW ENTER INTO THE LORD’S HOUSE OF PRAYER AND TOGETHER LET US PRAY FOR EACH OTHER:

LET US PRAY:

Most Holy and all wise God, our Heavenly Father, In the name of Jesus, the name that stands high above all other names, I lift you up in praise and honor this day for your mighty works and awesome power of love, giving freely of yourself that a dying world living in sin and dishonoring all that you have provided for us through the gift of Jesus Christ may live on through all eternity.  Father, how many ways can I say thank you, how many ways can I teach your children how to say thank you?  Sometimes in my spirit I feel lost for words when I think of all the suffering that your son Jesus had to endure for my sins and the sins of this world. I thank you Heavenly Father for allowing each of us to experience the reality of being a part of the resurrection this Easter Sunday Morning. My heart, and I am sure so many of your children’s hearts are heavy this morning, but as we come into the full knowledge and power of the truth of the wonderful teaching of Jesus Christ when he told us, that if you tear this house down, he would rebuild it in three days, this is the third day and he was truthful to his word when he rose up out of that tomb and this day, we as believers can truly say, Jesus is alive and He lives in us.  Thank you Father, for your marvelous gift of love to the world, for you are worthy to be praised, in Jesus name, Amen!

TODAY’ SCRIPTURE:  (John 20:24-25 MSG)

But Thomas, sometimes called the Twin, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples told him, “We saw the Master.”

But he said, “Unless I see the nail holes in his hands, put my finger in the nail holes, and stick my hand in his side, I won’t believe it.”

TODAY’ MESSAGE:  What do you believe?

IN THE RESURRECTION MARY MAGDALENE WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SEE JESUS

IN THE RESURRECTION MARY MAGDALENE WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SEE JESUS

Jesus resurrected and Mary Magdalene

Jesus resurrected and Mary Magdalene (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Jesus was born of a woman, and in the resurrection it was a woman who Jesus first showed himself too.  This woman was one who loved Jesus very much.  Her name was Mary MagdaleneWe see Jesus humility in his resurrection, as well as in his crucifixionJesus did not rise and then march into the Temple to confront the religious leaders or Caiaphas; he did not dash to the Praetorium to say to Pilate, “I told you so!”; he did not go stand in the center of Jerusalem to impress the crowd.  Instead, Jesus revealed himself only to believers.  The first person to see him was a woman who had been healed and forgiven and who tearfully stayed at the cross and followed his body to the tomb.  As Jesus demonstrated throughout his life, he responded to those who waited attentively and faithfully.  Jesus dissolved the perplexities of the disciples.  He dried their tears.  He dispelled their doubts.  Jesus knows how similar we are to his original disciples, and he does not overpower us either.  Even though our faithfulness wavers, Jesus faithfully stays with us.

How did Mary become the first person to see Jesus?  Mary apparently followed Peter and John back to the tomb.  When the two disciples left, she was there alone, still crying, still hoping that somehow she could discover where Jesus’ body had been taken, but fearing the worst.  Then she saw two white-robed angels.  The angels actually looked like humans-not beings with halos and wings.  The angels had appeared to the women and then sent them to spread the good news that Jesus was alive, but apparently they were not in the tomb when Peter and John arrived.  Yet they are here again to speak to Mary.

They said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?”  Under normal circumstances this would seem to be an odd question.  People might be expected to be crying beside the tomb of a loved one.  However, the angels knew why the tomb was empty.  They also knew that if these people had listened to Jesus words about his resurrection while he was alive, they would not be sad and confused; instead, they would be leaping for joy.  So the angels question was not odd, but obvious.  It was not meant as a rebuke, but as a reminder of heaven’s perspective.  Mary simply answered the angels question with her fears, “They took my Master,” she said, “and I don’t know where they put him.” After she said this, she turned away and saw Jesus standing there. But she didn’t recognize him.

Jesus spoke to her, “Woman, why do you weep? Who are you looking for?”

She, thinking that he was the gardener, said, “Mister, if you took him, tell me where you put him so I can care for him.”

Jesus said, “Mary.” Suddenly, to her amazement, she stood face to face with her living Lord.  Jesus spoke her name, and immediately she recognized him.  Imagine the love that flooded Mary’s heart when she heard her Savior saying her name!

Turning to face him, she said in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” meaning “Teacher!”  Mary’s immediate response was to touch Jesus and cling to him.  But Jesus stopped her.

Jesus said, “Don’t cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.'”

Mary Magdalene went, telling the news to the disciples: “I saw the Master!” And she told them everything he said to her.  “John 20:11-18 The Message (MSG)

Jesus sent Mary Magdalene to them with the first post-resurrection testimony.  Though it may be that Mary was formerly a woman of ill-repute, this did not keep Jesus from commissioning her to bring the gospel message to the apostles.  Mary was well qualified to be the messenger that Jesus chose to do the work of the Kingdom.  Today, women are in leading roles that have been chosen for them by our resurrected Lord.  It is time that all of us recognize their roles and let the work that Mary Magdalene was doing be an example of how the women of the world have been called by Jesus.

We have ministered this EASTER MESSAGE to you today from the THRONE of GRACE.  I leave you with My Hope that you have had the opportunity to experience the abundance of Jesus love, strength and patience that He shared with all of us this EASTER WEEKEND.  In JESUS CHRIST, I remain your brother PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

May each one of you receive a special blessing that is filled with an abundance of peace, love and joy this weekend.  Come back for our Easter Resurrection Praise and Worship Service which I will be preaching beginning at 0400.  The subject of our Resurrection message will be, “I BELIEVE!”

 

GOOD FRIDAY IS OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION

GOOD FRIDAY OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION

Today, we as Christians celebrate this day as Good Friday; It is truly OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION.  For many farmers it is the day for planting their seeds for fruit bearing.  It is truly a very unusual day when you think deeply upon it.  And of course yes, we will ask the question, what is Good Friday?  Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Pastor Davis is spending theses moments before God in prayer, meditation and deep reflections on the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ

How will you spend your GOOD FRIDAY?

We at VINE AND BRANCH WORLD MINISTRIES along with millions of BELIEVERS from all around the world will observe this day as a day of REFLECTION.  Reflecting on the life, death and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST as well as our own individual lives.  Let us pause and meditate on the life and death of Jesus as we experience the pain and anguish that Jesus felt as He hung on the Cross and bore our sins and the sins of the World.   Now let us watch this short Video Clip and reflect upon what this day really means to us.

As Jesus hung there on the cross, nails in his hands, feet and side.  Thrones on his head, bleeding from head to toe, he was teaching us the lessons of LOVE, COURAGE, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, FAITH, and FORGIVENESS.  He showed us that Strength is made perfect in weakness.  This next video clip is a short version of all that Jesus did for us.  Now reflect upon this.

In closing, let me make this one thing very clear, and that is this, “we are citizens of a city of God which we did not build and can never destroy, and that city stands on this day taller than anything that we can ever image in our small minds.”   Before His death, Jesus told us that if this temple was ever destroyed, he would rise up and rebuild it within three days.  No one at the time could imagine what He was talking about, because of the resurrection of CHRIST, we now live in that city of God that no man can destroy.  On this GOOD FRIDAY, let us reflect upon what Jesus did for us, and now what we can do for others.  This video clip will help take you to that special place that allows your heart to be filled with peace, joy, and love. Now watch and pray.

This is our day of PRAYER, MEDITATION AND REFLECTION, let us pray for each other, then reach out and express our love for each other.  I pray for you and you pray for me.  I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!
